BACKGROUND Infantile hemangiomas have a characteristic natural history of rapid proliferation in the first weeks of life followed by spontaneous involution. At birth, they may be present as a precursor lesion. Sometimes one may see precursor lesions that never undergo a growth phase or that undergo minimal growth. It is unclear the exact nature of these precursor-like lesions. OBJECTIVE We sought to describe the morphology and histopathology of these precursor-like lesions. METHODS We… CONTINUE READING
